Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Facts

  • The temporomandibular joint connects your jaw to your skull. If this joint is injured or damaged, it may lead to a localized pain disorder called temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome.
  • Some of, but not limited to, causes of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome are injuries to your jaw or teeth, arthritis, anxiety (stress), misaligned jaw, teeth grinding (bruxism), poor posture, and unfortunately even gum chewing.
  • TMD (Temporo Mandibular Disorder) and CCMD (Cranio Cervical Mandibular Dysfunction) are terms that better describe this condition of Temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
